    They've been saying that since the 1920's and as shale proves, we can develop alternatives.

    I'd do both as we are.

    The fact is that right now geothermal in the UK is not well developed and we don't yet have monochromatic solar power. And that's just on top of new nuclear for the base load. Until that is the case, let us track and export any surplus.

    Between space mining and Antarctica I'm optimistic about available resources.

    Plus, nuclear fusion will likely be viable later this century If we can get that producing, we'll be practically fine for energy needs.

    Yes fusion is the one thing I do hold out hope for but we need to seriously invest in it first

    Geothermal isnt viable in the UK due to the lack of volcanic activity which any A-level geographer can tell you.

    We van never mine Antarctica or the arctic for obvious reasons and there are serious issues with space mining

    Geothermal is underway in Cornwall and western Scotland, you don't need volcanoes.

    While generating electricity is a problem, we could produce all our heating in the UK from geothermal.

    We've also been discussing with Iceland the prospect of importing 20% of our electricity from their geothermal resources.

    Seeing as you hate this country so much why don't you just leave? I don't want, as most people won't, people living in this country who refuse to support and help it.

    Well patriotism is bad, apparently. In which case I doubt you would support Britain if there was another war. I'm very patriotic and proud of it. There is nothing wrong wit patriotism; you should want to defend your country and for the country to prosper.

    I wouldn't fight no, but that's because I'm a pacifist.
    the issue with countries and partitiosm is that it makes a 'them and us' attitude and counties are a system of archaic borders based on history and basicly 'we don't like them so we won't work with them' attitudes. Countries are relics of an old world which we should have left behind long ago.

    So you want one government ruling 7 billion people huh? Not very practical. And there will always be discontent with whoever is elected because he/she won't represent all social groups. No, individual nations is the right way forward. Each country should mind its own business and focus on achieving development within the country. Of course we should help out poorer countries, but putting everyone under one roof will only make matters worse. Your idea will never start up; nobody would agree to it and countries are always fighting over land: take Russia and Ukraine at the moment. Your idea is simply not practical.

    Well I'd also ideally like the population to reduce down to 4 billion.
    again that's a 'them and us' issue where people belive they are better then others just because they were born in London not Paris.
